    Desktop Icons

    Quick Question:

    Does anyone know the max dimensions of
    a desktop icon?
    In pixels preferrably


    ALSO:
    Is it possible to get rid of this?

    A simple google search would have given you the answer quickly:
    If you have Windows 7, I couldn't find anything.
    If you have vista, go here.
    If you have XP, I couldn't find anything.
    But I guess that was vista.

    That arrow means the icon is a shortcut, and not the original executable. IMO you should leave it like that, but if you insist on having the original file on your desktop, then browse its location, and drag it to the desktop.

    @Glenn: Sorry, I didn't know what to search, I couldn't find anything..
    If that needs to be downloaded, could you please explain how?
    after looking through the site, I didn't find any D/L links

    @Xemozu: Thanks, I was aware of that.. I'll be able to take that method for a
    few of my icons, but others will need to be done the other way
